Feb 10, 2013 Full story: 8

On Feb. 9, 2013, it was revealed that an Arizona news media outlet had obtained documents indicating Jodi Arias , the woman who has been dubbed the "Mormon Casey Anthony," will testify Monday that the man she's accused of killing, Travis Alexander, masturbated as he looked at pictures of young boys.

So, she sees this incident six months before she kills Alexander and she never calls police nor mentions this to any other human being? She sees this six months before she kills her lover, who she continues to have sex with, engaging in taking graphic photographs of him, even though she is aware of this deviance? She goes and speaks with Mormon clergy and is concerned about the trip Alexander was taking with another woman, but fails to mention this sin, which is also against the law? She never testified to any type of sexual abuse as a child. She testified that she was "used for sex", after participating in sex acts less than a week into meeting this stranger. How does someone "groom" an experienced adult woman, who had multiple sexual relationships with other men, in under 72 hours? Why did she continue with the relationship if she felt ungratified with the treatment and sex right from the beginning? How was she not bothered by the pedophilia, not having had a childhood past associated with such abuse that might have "normalized" these actions? How was she able to extract herself from prior relationships that never met this level of depravity? Why did she travel miles to see him, borrowing money to do so, when she didn't rely on him financially and was out of harm's way, in another state, where he was not pursuing her, and then have relations once again upon arrival? Why have the police not found a cache of images on his computer as is typically recovered in pedophilia cases? Why haven't the police found any reliable instances of Alexander attempting to position himself in circumstances with proximity to children, like interacting online with boys, coaching, or some other such activity, like Sandusky, for example? Why would Alexander be grooming Arias if she wasn't the mother of a young child? Why did he keep the relationship with her on the DL (according to Arias), if he was really attracted to boys; why wouldn't he have done so with a mother of boys instead of a woman with breast implants, who was described by other heterosexual men as the archetypal feminine ideal of being sexually alluring?

Is this another fantastical tale like the murderous ninjas? If contrived, this is so cold and callously calculating, that the risk for danger to the public is very real, if she is ever released from prison. I suppose I will need to hear or read about her testimony, but so far, much of what she has said so far is not credible because she is a proven liar who has made up at least three separate stories in an attempt to absolve herself of responsibility.

Perhaps this is merely an attempt at mitigation to avoid the death penalty, but a clear appearance of remorse would have gone a longer way rather than muddying up the victim. She may be digging her own grave with this testimony, and I'd rather see her sentenced to LWOP, if found guilty.

You should be on the prosecutor's payroll!
Jody Arias is digging her own grave with this ludicrous testimony.
The victim had no images of underage children on his computer and the computer forensics teams tore that hummer apart.
This woman really is a disgusting little parasite and needs to be locked up for eternity.

She's getting her right to a trial, and she is loving the attention, too. That's what she attention ***** and every word that comes spewing from her mouth will be her demise. She looks guilty, her body language gives her away, her eyes definitely give her away, and oh, those crocodile tears! I almost feel sorry for her.

She is digging her own grave by sparring with the prosecutor over wording on everything.. She comes off as a smug control freak that needs to prove how smart she is and how stupid everyone else is. She is the definition of evil - a true sociopath who tries to manipulate everyone around her. I can't believe her defense team is letting her carry on this way day after day. They should be trying to make her seem cooperative and sweet and innocent, and she's coming out as anything BUT.
Geeeeee for Jodi

I don't think he was a sex offender against boys, although he may very well have been a pedophile. I don't think that all pedophiles are sexual predators, lol. That's kindof a ridiculous idea to jump to. Its like someone else said on here- a voyeuristic man who likes women would be dating women- and would be looking at naked pics of women (even while dating- lets face it)- but a pedophile or other type of sex offender or sexual deviant is often married with children of his own. A cache can easily be cleared- You just go into your internet options and set it up to not hold any cache files. Or click "clear cache" every day. That doesn't delete that you visited that website, though. The forensic examination of his computer was crude at best. Go figure- with all the mormons out in Mesa.. just go figure. Plus, the slashed tires thing- I bet that was made up after the fact, too. No police report. We still have yet to hear the tape of that particular call, even. Give me a break. The state is looking for a fall guy. I think this was a blood atonement ritual done by the LDS church. It still happens- people still do it. The last time it was public, a man on death row asked for an execution rather than lethal injection, in order to make a blood atonement, and that was just a few years ago. Of course, the LDS church made a statement the day before that blood atonement was no longer necessary because Jesus Christ shed his blood and atoned for all of our sins.. so if this man was SO strongly religious, why not listen to his church's leaders?? Oh that's right. Because he knew it was just for PR. Yeppers.

Then why would he have slept with his ex Deanna and gone to officials and told to do repentance or whatever and not killed then? That's silly, Jodi did it, she said she did it, it's just the matter of whether it was premeditated or not and I think it was. No one would say they did it and make up several lies beforehand if they didn't do it and had a real alibi.
